I stayed here twice in April on a work visit. My South Korean hosts picked the hotel. It is conveniently located to the bus station across the street so that might have been the prime motivation for this location. The hotel was clean but small by American standards (typical of hotels at this price range in the region). My tub... More

I came here visiting Korea with a friend. I was a little worried at first that it was far from the subway but it wasn't too bad (maybe 10 mins from Sinnonhyeon Station). It was also in a safe neighborhood (which was good because we were all girls) and on the main road. There was also plenty of night life... More

Booked the room through booking.com for a cheap price. Overall it was quite ok and clean, there was a desktop in room which could be quite useful. Not close to subway or near any commercial center. No restaurant or fitness center in the hotel, and there wasn't anything that I should complain about.

It was our first trip to Seoul Korea and we had joined a budget tour. We had earlier been told by friends that seoul was an expensive city to live in and that their hotels had small rooms so we were not expecting much. The guide told us that we were getting an upgrade and that our room would be... More

Book this hotel through agoda.com. Review in agoda is v good. But disappointed with the hotel. Room is clean but not in good condition. Kinda old. Hotel also far away from subway about 15mins walk. Breakfast not provided. Need to find your own breakfast elsewhere.

Is it normal to get a receipt by chekcing out the hotel? For the lady behind the reception desk was not. You have had to discussed with her for a long time to get it. And she was sooooo lazy but she can speak English... The room is in dark color, and you have to used to the staff who... More

After reading many reviews calling it a "love Hotel" I was a little worried about what it would be like. I was very happy with my stay, the rooms were very nice and clean, nicer then many other non- love hotels I've stayed it in Korea. The Hotel was also very near the subway which made it very easy to... More

This hotel was a very nice surprise. I had read virtually nothing of the hotel and suspected that it was a love hotel. Though I still think the hotel may double as a love hotel (the hotel gives an amenity package that includes a condom), it's really great for the business traveller. The service is pretty much non-existent in the... More
